I've been striping for about 20 years, nowhere near the best, but not that bad either, if you know what I mean lol. I don't stripe near as much as I used to, seems that it gets hot for a while, and then fades off for a couple of years. When i started it was all about Mack brushes, then at some point i decided to order me a set of Kafka brushes. Took some getting used to as the Kafka uses the tip more than the Mack sword stripers. What are you guys that pull lines using?
